Brett Dennen and his Eco-Concert

I was introduced to Brett Dennen's music about a year and half ago in the start of my relationship with my boyfriend, Jesse. Brett's music is so happy and upbeat that I became an instant fan. I decided to get Jesse and I tickets to Brett's concert as a one year of dating gift.

Not only was it an amazing show that had us dancing and singing to our hearts content but we were also able to find out a lot of information on Brett himself.  He really lives the messages he sings, how refreshing. He proves this in so many ways but one is by giving all the proceeds of items sold at the show  to the invisible childeren charity. We were told by multiple workers and friends of Brett that he is not a rich man, but really does not care about becoming one either.  His life and entire attitude is down to earth and I feel honored to be able to say that I shook this man's hand and even got a hug!

Please keep up the great work Brett and we are here to support you!

Brett's tour contributions:

  • Using extensive waste reduction and recycling backstage and on buses
  • Stocking catering with biodegradable and compostable products to replace petroleum and paper-based products
  • Eating locally-grown and organic food backstage
  • Using reusable water bottles and water stations backstage for band and crew to reduce plastic bottle waste
  • Using non-toxic cleaners and post-consumer recycled bathroom tissue on tour buses
  • Calculating and neutralizing the carbon footprint from tour buses, trucks, flights and venue energy use by supporting renewable energy
